Dark Horse Comics announced the early orders for its Uncle Scrooge statue caused the limited edition collectible to sell out before its August 2009 release date.

Modeled after products that were popular in the 1930s and 1940s, these statuettes have been designed and manufactured to be consistent with earlier Syroco-style figures. These latest pieces, sculpted by Yoe! Studio, join the ever-growing collection of the world’s most famous characters from comic strips, books and, cartoons presented by Dark Horse in this unique style.

I like that this statue and the five others (Donald Duck, Gyro Gearloose, Magica De Spell, Gladstone Gander, and the Beagle Boys, were created to look like they originally appeared in the comic books, and that each has a distressed look to make them look like they were built in the ’30’s and’40’s.
